FOLLOWING ON from yesterdays post on Christopher Lee and his 'KNIFE AND BIRTHDAY CAKE GAG' this could be where it all started maybe. The year, 1958. The place, Universal Pictures headquarters. Both Cushing and Lee along with chairman of Hammer films, James Carreras and producer Anthony Hinds were invited to a pre-opening night luncheon with the reps and executives. It was Christopher Lee's birthday, the day after Peter Cushing's. At mid-night, the 'The Horror of Dracula' was screened...and the rest, as they say, is history!
#PeterCushing and #ChristopherLee: THE LAST MEETING: Lee and Cushing chat about going to NEW YORK and the DRACULA premier.
THE BRITS HAVE LANDED! Lee, Cushing, Carrreras, and Hinds on the tarmac of the airport having just arrived in New York to attend the Hammer Dracula premier. They would go on from here to meet Alfred (Al) Daff, and hear first hand from him and the Universal executives on how HORROR OF DRACULA had saved the company from bankruptcy...
